T is for… Theory
I have a theory, and please do humour me with this one… There’s something special about 3 and 5 when it comes to tracks on an album. For years I’ve noticed that tracks 3 and 5 of most albums are usually two of the best songs on an album and often track 3 is usually released as a single. This is something I’ve noticed lots of times BUT have never […]
It’s All in the Detail…
I used to view Apple as a company that cared about the finer details but today’s update to iOS6.1 is making me change that view. Before I go on, let me just say that yes, I know how trivial this will seem when you read it, but it’s just one of those little things that is going to annoy the crap out of me now that I have noticed it! […]
If you follow me on The Twitter (@MaFt) then I apologise as you’ve probably read all this anyway but I thought I’d share the amusing tale of two people who kept me entertained for nearly an hour this evening. The following is a copy & paste of my live-tweeting earlier this evening.
The Latest Rumour Is Actually Just News Of A Rumour Of Some News…
It must be a tough life being a tech blogger / tech news reporter. I mean, there’s hardly any new technology or products being developed at all that can be written about. No one even uses existing technology for anything interesting and newsworthy either. Things are so bad on a daily basis that they must start to report rumours as news. Oh, wait, hang on. Actually, there are a tonne […]

Basically, every Monday you do a short blog post about a band and 5 songs of theirs that you like or that have some deep meaning in your life that you can pretend your readers actually care about. You start with the letter ‘A’ […]
Perhaps the title itself will give this slightly bizarre blog post away before I even start. Perhaps though, I am misrepresenting you as physics geeks. Time shall tell! There is a theory in Quantum Mechanics (a branch of physics) that matter can both exist and not exist at the same time – this is referred to as a ‘superposition’. Admittedly it is somewhat more complex than that – feel free […]
The EULA Will End All of Apple’s Woes
With the on-going ‘saga’ of the iPhone 4’s reception issues (if you’re not aware then, sorry but, where the heck have you been?! Mars?!) Mr Jobs is giving a Press Conference later today about it. Lots of people are talking about product recalls or free bumpers (cases for the iPhone 4 that, because they stop direct contact between sweaty fingers and the phone’s antennae, stop the ‘reception issue’ from showing […]
